X-Ray Suite

The Imaging Suite is fully equipped for use by both postgraduate and undergraduate students to develop skills in image interpretation and reporting, patient positioning and image appreciation.

X-Ray suite in Ty Dewi Sant

Simulation of radiographic positioning provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain confidence before their clinical placements.

The suite also has a controlled area environment which is used for 3rd year research projects on image quality and radiation dose assessment.

Equipment in the suite includes:

  • a functioning X-ray tube and table including an upright bucky
  • a Computed Radiography system linked to the in-house Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) for imaging of phantoms
  • ultrasound machines.

High definition reporting monitors are used to assess images captured with the equipment, which allows manipulation of image quality factors.
